The future is uncertain and the speed of technology is too high. As time elapses we observe large and deep changes in the world. Richard Watson, a futurist, has written a very interesting book on the trends that will shape the next 50 years. Although he named the book “future files” he claims that his intention is simply to reinterpret the present, to broaden perspectives and widen horizons, not to predict the future.
